I have been working on my family tree and as I was watching a movie the other day it talked about a WAR DOG Training program. It made me start to think about my father (Charles Tholey), who past away nine years ago. He was stationed in the Aleutian Islands during WW II. He always told me stories of his dog named Lanny. I always thought it was just a dog that he found and decided to keep. I even have a picture of him with my Dad and a sign saying where he was. Is it possible that he was a war dog, even though my father never actually mentioned that. I also remember him telling me that he was trained to only take food from my father to make sure he never was given any food that would hurt him.
I know he served in BTY D 10th CA WWII.
If there was any kind of record of the dogs it would be wonderful to include Lanny in our family tree.
Thank you. Jackie O'Brien
Any input would be appreciated
